The unit can also capture 10MP JPEGs at up to 10fps in burst shooting mode. The camera itself is designed to survive drops of 2 meters, along with temperatures as low as -10°C/14°F, and is also dustproof and water resistant.
Users can user built-in Wi-Fi to control shooting via the PixPro Remote Viewer app for Android and iOS, with NFC available for easier pairing. Five viewing modes are available including 360 degrees Panorama, Front (212 degrees), Split with 180 degrees front and rear views simultaneously, Dome (214 degrees) and Ring/Sphere (360 degrees).

New Kodak PIXPRO SP360 Action Cam Redefines 360 Degrees HD Video And Panoramic Photography With A Single, Compact And Personal Device
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 28, 2014 -- JK Imaging, Ltd., the worldwide licensee for KODAK PIXPRO Digital Cameras and Devices, announced today its new SP360 Action Cam. This game-changing, innovative and highly portable device is designed to capture stunning 360 degrees HD videos and fully immersive images all in one shot and without the need for multiple cameras and devices.
The SP360 Action Cam is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and sports a unique, dome-shaped fixed lens that captures stunning 360 degrees HD videos (30fps) that can be shot and viewed from multiple vantage points including: 360 degrees Panorama, Front (212 degrees), Split with 180 degrees front and rear views simultaneously, Dome (214 degrees) and Ring/Sphere (360 degrees) modes.
Until now, 360 degrees panoramic photography required most users to possess some advanced techniques, specialized equipment, editing software to stitch content together and most importantly, the need for multiple cameras. "The SP360 Action Cam revolutionizes this sometimes cumbersome process and streamlines what really matters, capturing users not only doing what they love, but them engulfed in doing it," said Mike Hackett, executive vice president of JK Imaging, Ltd.
The SP360 Action Cam goes beyond just capturing fully immersive 360 degrees HD video and adds a new level of interactivity with free, de-warping app software included for Mac or PC based systems, that allows owners to edit their content post capture. Once the HD video is downloaded from the SP360 to a computer, users have the ability to pan and select a multitude of viewing angles (including: top, left and right) and save them as new video files. Users can also select individual frames from different viewing perspectives in the HD video and save them as hi-resolution still photos for even more creative ways to capture and share their passions and experiences.
For even more flexibility, the SP360 is equipped with a motion sensor setting to automatically trigger recording when it detects movement, especially helpful for hands-free activities. The SP360 Action Cam is Wi-Fi® enabled and allows quick connection to a smart phone, smart device or personal computer (iOS™ 6, Android™ 4.0, Mac™ OS X10.9, or Windows™ 8/7 systems or higher) to act as an additional method of remote control or for viewing the content the user is shooting from up to 65 feet away. The SP360 uses the free PIXPRO SP360 iOS or Android-based App available in Apple's iTunes and Google Play stores now.
The KODAK PIXPRO SP360 Action Cam is splash proof, freezeproof (-10 degrees c), shockproof (2m), and dustproof. It is compatible with a microSDHC memory card, Class 6 or higher and up to 32GB capacity (memory card sold separately). The SP360 Action Cam comes with: a rechargeable Li-ion battery, battery charger, AC adapter, Micro USB cable, clear plastic lens cover, protective lens cover, carrying case and cleaning cloth.
The SP360 weighs only 3.63 ounces (103g) and is sold with 3 different accessory bundles so users can take the action cam on the go depending on their activity or adventures. The Explorer bundle for entry-level (MSRP US$349), the Aqua bundle for watersports (MSRP US$349) and the Extreme Accessories bundle (MSRP US$399) which includes: bar mount for multiple mounting options such as handle-bars; flat adhesive mount for skate or paddle board; curved adhesive mount head strap; helmet mounts; surfboard adhesive mount; suction cup mount; extended arms; quick clip; tethers; clear standard mount housing and clear waterproof housing.

Take a quick tour of Nikon's new D850 in our 'First Look' video and find out what makes this new pro-level DSLR so exciting. Hint: a lot of things.
Nikon appears to have pulled out all the stops for its D850. It combines high resolution and speed: a full-frame 45.7MP BSI CMOS sensor capable of 7 fps bursts. The D5's 153-point AF system, a tilting touchscreen and 4K/24p video are also on board. It arrives in September for $3300.
The Nikon D850 is a 45.7MP full-frame DSLR that can shoot at seven frames per second. Supporting this is an autofocus system lifted wholesale from the company's pro-sports D5 model. Add in a bigger viewfinder and full-width 4K capture and you've got a lot more than a warmed-up D810.

If you're shooting the solar eclipse here's a hint: don't fry your camera's sensor. Use a proper solar filter that offers at least 16 stops of light filtration, along with UV and IR filtering. More important? Don't look at it unless you've got solar filters. Sensors can be replaced, your retinas can't.
